The Stanley Cup Playoffs begin this week and to celebrate the arrival at last of NHL postseason play following an entertaining 82-game marathon season, a bar in Montreal constructed a replica of Lord Stanley’s Cup made entirely out of bacon.

Make that 22 pounds of bacon.

The Montreal establishment behind the 20-plus-pound bacon behemoth is Bar Brutus, a bar known for its heavily bacon-focused menu. Co-owner Anthoni Jodoin told Huffington Post Canada that the inedible paean to porky goodness will be on display throughout the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Given the bar’s location, a majority of the patrons visiting the eatery throughout the NHL postseason are hoping they can enjoy a deep run in the playoffs by the Montreal Canadiens, who begin their pursuit of hoisting the Cup with a first-round match-up against the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday.

There have been several replicas of the Stanley Cup created entirely out of foodstuffs — the Stanley Cupcake is a solid entry, although the “Manley Cup,” made out of 35 pounds of meat is not too shabby, either — but one made out of bacon? That tops the list.
